Could not get the perfect answer from this question


Citizen of India.

Permanent resident in Canada.

Journey from New Delhi to Vancouver via Tokyo, NRT


My flight starts at,

New Delhi (DEL) to Tokyo (NRT), with flight duration, 7:35 PM Sunday to 6:50 AM, Monday, April

As my connecting flight from Tokyo NRT to Vancouver is departing at 6:20 PM, Monday, April, I would like to stay within Tokyo NRT airport for a layover duration of 11h 30m

Am trying to understand, visa restrictions(if any) for 12 hr stay in Tokyo, NRT.


Question:

Does NRT airport authority allow passenger to stay(without any visa/document/pass) in airport for 12 hours(max) to board connecting flight?

  • @pnuts Yes, I would like to know, if I will be kicked out of the airport. Because, in that case, I should cancel my trip. As I do not have time to apply for visa to live outside Tokyo airport – overexchange Feb 26 '17 at 3:00

You will be able to stay airside at Narita International Airport, allowing you to transit without a visa, while waiting for your connecting flight to Canada. It has many services that can make the long wait easier, including shower and sleeping rooms, capsule hotel, smoking area, lounges, along with shops, restaurants and other amenities.

As stated in Timatic, the database used by virtually all airlines, including JAL:

Transit without a visa: holders of onward tickets transiting on the same calendar day

So yes, you can stay there for your connection

  • @overexchange The database that check-in agents use to decide if you can fly or not. It is based on live information that the world's governments provide to IATA – Crazydre Feb 26 '17 at 11:19
